Tuesday evening, WR Senior Vice President of Policy and Government Affairs Mark Johnson and Director of the Retail Industry Coalition of Seattle John Engber attended the House Democratic Campaign Committee and Washington Senate Democratic Campaign joint post-primary fundraising reception in SeaTac.
The event was well attended, including Speaker of the House Laurie Jenkins, House Caucus Campaign Chairman Joe Fitzgibbon, Senate Caucus Campaign Chairman Jamie Pedersen, and Senate Ways and Means Chairwoman Christine Rolfes. Several other legislators were present from around the state. Joining the event were numerous candidates for the legislature.
Speeches included a thank you to candidates, supporters, and current and retiring members. Both Senate and House Democratic Caucuses are optimistic about their prospects for the 2022 General Election. The Senate and House, as well as the Governor’s Office, are currently controlled by the Democrats.
WR maintains two political action committees and personally attends all four caucus events – Democratic and Republican – to meet potential legislators and connect with existing members. WR and its team look forward to meeting many of the candidates for the legislature and building strong working relationships with the winners of the general election.
